TEDxYouth@ Austin Event

TEDxYouth@Austin, a team of Austin youth that put together a full-day TED talk event in February at Westlake High School that aims to create an engaging environment for youth to explore “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Every year, more than 1000 students from over 85 schools in the area discover topics from speakers and performers that pertain to the chosen theme.

This year, for the 2018 event, we would love to see students from your high school. To give the students a taste of the larger event, we are creating a smaller event at
Anderson High School on November 8th at 5:15pm to 7:15 pm. Specifically, we'd like to show a reel of TED talks for students who are interested and have a few activities used to show the theme for the 2018 main event.
